April Fools Holiday notes.

Dancing people happy to music.

Dancing People is a painting I made with a few brushes and some paint.

I believe it was 1976 when Nike`, this girl left me, not the girl in the painting. 1976 from 2000 is 34 plus 10 is 44 so that was 46? years ago. I remember pounding on the door where she was with this guy who had been a friend of mine at work at the store where I sold cameras with him and his dad and Betty and Elsa some.
I sat around and cried lots that evening. I remember what the apartment building looked like. It seemed as if it was an ironic day to leave me and cause me to be all heartbroken and feel betrayed.
I have a great deal of sympathy for people when they are in the throes of broken heartedness. Aviator does a good job of showing a broken hearted Howard Hughes. It causes some people to commit suicide, or murder. Some people feel that there would be less war if women were more understandable. One of my hero writers James Jones had some hangups about it all indicating war comes from frustrations with women as in Some Came Running the broken hearted young man goes off to war and gets his throat cut with his own knife. In Go to the Widowmaker? there seems to be a lot of desire for a threesome with the new wife and the diver.
Overall the value of love story movies and stories is as warning to young people or even others that just because you think the other person is your soul mate, they don’t.
It is my practiced opinion that this thing where so many young people seem to have no value for great books contributes to their intellectual poverty and unfocused pain when they get their hearts broken.
I think my reading list is fantastic and has created a really sane person who in 1991 became a fully fixed gentleman after another severe heartbreak.
So happy to you Transcendian April Fools.

About Russell Scott Day

I come from sailors and priests. My aim is to prevent apocalyptic riot, better known as nuclear war, when I was growing up. Creating a nation of airports will create the peace enough environment to prevent apocalyptic riot. I had a vision due to a period of boredom and bliss like the Aleph of Borges. That is the story I learned and was made up and happens.
